Wyndham Vale IGA robbed
A Wyndham Vale IGA has been robbed after three hooded-men held a knife to the neck of an employee at the south-west supermarket on Sunday night, demanding cash and cigarettes.
The shop worker, aged in her fifties, received lacerations to her hand during the incident, and was treated by Paramedics at the scene. A police spokeswoman said on Monday morning investigators would be reviewing CCTV footage of the incident.
With a couple of solutions that can make these crimes preventable, one of the new products offered by Australian bollards is the body camera. It is a gadget used by police and security to help capture audio, visual and photographic imagery and recordings. With many shops and petrol stations, opened late at night, this camera can be the ideal and reliable solution to help protect not only the police, but members of the community. Body cameras increase public reassurance, reduce fear of crime in local areas, resolve complaints about the police and most importantly, reduce assaults.

With a plethora of ram-raids and robberies happening on a regular basis; another level of protection could be to have bollards installed at the front of the store; to accentuate safety.
